It looks like one of his go to moves is to kick it off the nearest defender then chase after it.

 

Wish this reel stayed with the play a couple of seconds longer in each clip - he definitely dribbled straight out of touch at least a couple of times.

Sancho has signed for the Mancs so they've for nothing to talk about in a long drawn out manner with loads of dramatic pauses before saying something that means fuck all.

 

 

You can cut the sexual tension with a knife.

Convinced on things like talk sport and Sky they're given a topic and then flip a coin to see which extreme side of the argument they have to come down on.

The FF was doing that before it was fashionable.

Nah they just have such a diverse panel of contributors that no two ever have the same opinion.

They've got Owen Jones and Katie Hopkins on tomorrow to debate the Kane transfer.

Traore would be a great signing….our problem has been unlocking 10 man defences at home, so buy the most disruptive player for the opposition. He’s a Plan B….rather than the inverted wingers, sign an exceptionally quick, strong, skilful dribbler who can get to behind defences to the byline.

 

This is how City have beaten Burnley 5-0 for the past 4 seasons whilst we struggle to score against them.  City pull the ball back to someone running on  in the box like we used to in the 70s and 80s. Nicking the ball off the opposition and “ transitioning quickly” doesn’t work against teams who play it long and have men behind the ball. Jurgen learnt this from last season.

 

Traore is the modern day Franz Carr or Tony Daley. That’s a compliment BTW, flair and disruption, although a lot of modern day fans prefer their stats and percentages. A country grown up on Charles Hughes and cliche Shearer soundbits.

If there's any truth in this fee, we should be all over this. 

 

Barcelona want £12.8m for 18-year-old Spanish midfielder Ilaix Moriba. The teenager has attracted interest from Wolves but the Catalan club are yet to receive an acceptable offer.

Think he wants £100k a week at Barce. Looks an absolute specimen but you’d worry about an 18 year old with those financial expectations.

I spoke with Dynamite about that a while back. I think the wage expectations is knowing he could get close if he moved and the fact Barcelona are paying others. They paid Francisco Trincão 140k a week after signing him after only 33 games for Braga. If you see other youngsters getting paid you'd want paid aswell

So your solution to beating teams who park the bus and sit deep, is to get the fastest football sprinter in the world, to use the 10 metres of space behind them and then cut the ball back in between the 11 players they have sat inside their own box?

Ha ha, I’ve been saying for years, what we really need is a latter day Franz Carr or Tony Daley, We’d tear shit up we would.

Yes exactly.. we have been too narrow when breaking down teams. Use the whole width of the pitch and have a player who with a burst of pace and skill can disrupt a well set defence. If you can’t get through, get behind.

 

when we won the League in ‘90, in a different way we needed Ronnie Rosenthal as our disruptor as teams knew how to set up against us.

He's traditionally been least effective against teams in a low block.
